Montreal, QC, Canada
Clearlight Gerald is an iRest Mentor and certified iRest Meditation Teacher, and an IAYT-certified Yoga Therapist and Perinatal Specialist, who brings over two decades of experience teaching and supporting students in group classes and trainings, and in individual mentoring. Since Clearlight first met her teachers and mentors Richard Miller and Joan Ruvinsky in 2004, she has been deeply immersed in the study of nondual wisdom teachings and practices that inform the transformative practice of iRest Yoga Nidra.
As a trained specialist in iRest Meditation and in yoga for perinatal health and wellbeing, Clearlight has guided thousands of women through the journey of inviting and living parenthood. She teaches people from all walks of life, and specializes in the application of the principles and practices of iRest to the lived context of fertility, pregnancy and childbirth. Her individualized sessions consist of dyadic inquiry (iRest co-meditation), and/or therapeutic yoga practices that allow for the development of personalized strategies to help reduce stress, minimize suffering and improve overall wellbeing. These sessions also provide an opportunity for meditative inquiry and perspective, clarity and insight.
Clearlight is an iRest Certification Supervisor, a role in which she has served with joy since the inception of the iRest teacher training program. Within the context of supervision, and within the context of professional mentoring, Clearlight brings warmth, insight and the skillfulness to support new teachers in fully developing and living their wisdom and potential.
Clearlight lives with her husband and children in the Montreal area in Canada. (And yes, she was named Clearlight at birth! ☺)
